Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville, remains confident in the ethics and campaign finance bills that Gov. Rick Scott has until midnight Wednesday to veto. He also voiced frustrations at the federal government for the "inflexibility" of Obamacare.
Two priorities of the Senate and House are on Gov. Rick Scott’s desk waiting to be signed with a deadline quickly approaching.
Scott has until midnight Wednesday to sign or veto three bills that reform alimony payments, ethics standards and campaign finance practices. If he does not sign or veto a bill, it will automatically go into law.
“I can’t imagine why the Governor wouldn’t sign those bills,” said Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville.
When the idea of overriding a possible veto from Scott, Gaetz did not want to speculate on using that power.
“It seems to me that the Governor has every reason to sign good bills because they’re good bills, not because other things happened but because those good bills on ethics and campaign finance stand on their own merit,” said Gaetz. “I would expect him to sign the bills.”
